Abstract

In this paper, a stable and wavelength-switchable erbium-doped fiber (EDF) laser by utilizing the silicon-micro-ring-resonator (SMRR) and multiple-fiber-ring (MFR) scheme is demonstrated. Here, three optical couplers (CPs) can construct the passive MFR in the proposed and achieve single-longitudinal-mode (SLM) output simultaneously. The SMRR is used inside a fiber cavity as mode restrict element for wavelength-tuning. By properly adjusting the polarization controllers (PCs), the output wavelength can be tuned in a wavelength range of 1544.35 to 1564.10 nm with a ∼ 2.0 nm tuning step. Hence, the proposed EDF laser can reach the characteristics of SLM output, 35 kHz output linewidth, and optical single-to-noise ratios (OSNRs) of > 54.9 dB. In addition, the output stabilities of the power and wavelength in the proposed EDF laser are also discussed.
